UK Scientists Weigh In on Brexit and Laboratory Spending - Science Advisory Board Insights
The long road to a resolution of the Brexit situation appeared to be nearing an end earlier this year, with the deadline set for March 29 to finalize how Britain would exit the EU. A “hard” Brexit, the case if no EU-Britain agreement is reached, would remove Britain from the EU’s single market among other consequences. A “soft” exit would result in Britain remaining part of the single market, but not an EU member. With a government stalemate in Britain, the EU agreed to extend the deadline until October 31, though a deal may come sooner.  Discuss
Bioprocess Innovation: Why not?
The Science Advisory Board ® is excited to present the third piece in our trends in bioprocessing series, written by Angelo DePalma, Ph.D. This article discusses why innovations occur at such a slow pace in bioprocessing and drug development despite the rate of technological and scientific advancements.  Discuss
Trends in Bioprocessing: Continuous Upstream Bioprocessing
The Science Advisory Board ® is excited to present the second piece in our trends in bioprocessing series, written by Angelo DePalma, Ph.D. This article addresses the topic of continuous manufacturing, which is being extensively explored in academia and industry as a means to increase efficiency and integrate new technologies to bioprocessing operations.
Extractables and Leachables in Single-Use Bioprocessing
At The Science Advisory Board ®, we recognize the important role that bioprocessing and drug development scientists play in the biopharmaceutical industry, and we value your input on the panel. We invited bioprocessing expert Angelo DePalma, Ph.D. to provide his opinion on the state of extractables and leachables in single-use bioprocessing.  Discuss
The Intersection of Life Scientists and Social Media: A Revolution
How do your peers receive information online and how do they utilize social media as a means of learning new information and sharing content? These are just a few of the questions that our colleagues at BioInformatics Inc. explored in a recent report about digital marketing to life scientists.  Discuss
Tech Overview - Organic Elemental Analysis
We're back again with another article in our atomic spectroscopy series! Today we are discussing organic elemental analyzers. At the Science Board we classify organic elemental analyzers as instruments specialized for the measurement of elements strongly associated with organic molecules, as well as samples typically studied within the life sciences.  Discuss
The Future is Here... Applications of 3D Printing in Biopharmaceuticals
There’s some seriously cool science being developed with the help of 3D printing including transparent skulls to allow researchers to view real-time brain activity, and a sponge that “soaks up” excess chemo drugs to reduce toxic side effects. In bioprocessing and drug discovery, 3D printing has already been instrumental in changing the way the industry functions with the dawn of precision medicine and applications in single-use technologies. Applications in the medical industry are disruptive and many scientists are focused on innovations in medical devices, and regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. Manufacturing plays a vital role in supporting nearly all sectors of the global economy and 3D printing, or “additive manufacturing”, is poised to change the landscape of manufacturing in the U.S. and the world.  Discuss
Tech Overview - Inorganic Elemental Analysis
Welcome to the next piece in our atomic spectroscopy series! This post will feature inorganic analyzers. At The Science Advisory Board we consider inorganic analyzers to include instruments that detect and measure elements that are not typically associated with organic chemistry, as well as organic elements that are detectable in inorganic materials (such as measuring carbon in steel).  Discuss
Is It Worth The Risk? Business Trends You Should Know About In The Bioprocessing Industry
The bioprocessing market is currently worth billions of dollars globally and is expected to increase 8.7 percent over the next five years. Pharmaceutical and biotech industries are the largest consumers of bioprocessing and their demand is expected to increase 9.3 percent over the next five years. Within these industries there are a limited number of vendors with the largest market share, including: Danaher (Pall & GE Life Sciences), MilliporeSigma (Merck Group) and Thermo Fisher. All of us probably have used products from one, if not all, of these companies at some point in our scientific careers. So the question is: how did these companies grow so large and gain dominance in the bioprocessing field?  Discuss
2019 ASM Biothreats Conference Highlights Biosecurity and Epidemics Research
“What’s the first thing you think of when you hear Ebola?” asked speaker John Dye, PhD, of the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases at the American Society for Microbiology’s (ASM) Biothreats conference, held during the last week of January in Arlington, Virginia. Ebola was one of the most talked about high-consequence pathogens at the event. However, the discussions were not somber but rather inspirational, focused on learning from past outbreaks in order to inform novel ways to approach detection and prevention of Ebola, as well as other pathogens and toxins.  Discuss
